Hello my name is Colin. I'm a DJ, engineer, musician, producer, sound designer, vinyl collector, and a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University's Recording Industry Management Program. But before all of that I was a kid who loved listening to, creating, and recording music.
Reaching above and beyond what I have previously accomplished is always my goal, so if you have service requests outside of those listed on this page, just drop me a line and I'll be happy to work with you to achieve your goals however I can.
My emphasis is on creativity and originality, making it a point to stay abreast of where the recording, music, and film industries are headed, and striving to add to those narratives in a meaningful way. A mix of technology and technique, tradition and innovation, and a love and enthusiasm for the craft of creating and shaping audio flows through all things I do. These simple but effective principles have always guided me when recording, mixing, and creating.
As an audio professional and musician I have found one of my greatest assets to be flexibility. By adapting to a situation's limitations and advantages, I am able to avoid the urge to fit new creative ideas into an already existing sonic framework that may limit it's potential before fully forming. To this end, I pride myself on listening to a client's needs and wants, then helping them extract the essence of their ideas to use as a foundation for creating a unique and pleasurable listening experience.

Interview with Three C's Studios
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Try everything, especially the things everyone else tells you not to. They only told you that, because it didn't work for them. That's the beauty of creativity working in congress with technology, there is almost never one right answer.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I find I'm generally attracted to experimentation and DIY style production. Madlib, who is a Hip-Hop and Jazz beat maker and producer, is a favorite of mine. His music is somewhat of an acquired taste, and would best be described as a patchwork of sampled material mashed together in a confusing but weirdly organized mess of sound... it's pretty excellent.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My work with clients has been fairly varied, from restoration to editing and sound design. But ultimately the work I like most and clients get enthusiastic about is the production and mixing side of things. It's really satisfying to hear yourself on a track made to fit you like a glove, or discover a sound you might not have come across on your own. Sometimes it's just getting a mix to mesh together and come alive, but it always ends up giving the recording a whole new life. These kinds of projects have been very professionally fulfilling and creatively satisfying, and give me a chance to really help the client shine.
